We’re hosting a dinner party you just can’t refuse.

WWU’s Palliative Care Institute has partnered with A Sacred Passing and The End of Life Washington Organization, formerly called Compassion & Choices, to offer an evening of great food, wine, information, laughter and a little portion of death.

We are bringing the best resources together for an entertaining evening that will actually be good for you. Having Death, or his stand in, over for Dinner can be an easier way to approach the conversation about end-of-life options. 

This dinner event will be facilitated by Ashley Benem, Death Midwife, LMP, author & Executive Director of A Sacred Passing. Each course will bring exploration of facts and humor about the end of life process and how to plan for the inevitable in a real, practical way. And you’ll get a chance to complete your up-to-date Advance Directive over dessert and coffee with help from Ashley. 

It’s a smorgasbord heaped with information, feelings, laughter, revealed assumptions, guesses and creativity. All the ingredients for a memorable dinner party. 

There are two seatings for this event - One on August 18th in the Orchard at Hovander Homestead and one on October 20th at the Lairmont Manor.   

Seating is limited for both events.  Cost is $100 per/person; includes a delicious dinner, catered by Lovitt Restaurant, wine, dessert, facilitated discussion & documents. A portion of the fee is a donation to support programs to improve palliative and end of life care at the  Palliative Care Institute, End of Life Washington and A Sacred Passing.  All are 501(c)3 organizations. For more information contact info@asacredpassing
